What is EmploySecure.com?
EmploySecure.com is a McLaughlin Investigative Group, Inc. company founded in 1999, and is based in Massachusetts. The company offers employment background screening services. Founded by a veteran private investigator, the company boasts that it hires “only the best, utilizes highly trained researchers, subscribes to over 20 national databases, and applies an eye for detail and diligence” to all screens.
EmploySecure.com can dig deeply into a potential employee’s past. They can run a credit reports and a social security number trace. Their investigation into a person’s criminal background covers county, state, nationwide, and federal databases. They can find a person’s driving records, delve into workers compensation settlements, and verify employment and educational records.
Searching for a job and running the gauntlet through the interview process is all-consuming. It’s no surprise that an employment background check isn’t on your top ten list of concerns. In today’s employment landscape, however, it’s routine for an employer to contract with a company like EmploySecure.com to run reports on prospective employees. The results can result in the reward of landing the job – or the disaster of a rejection.
Background check companies aren’t infallible. They make mistakes. For example, they may run across erroneous information and fail to fully investigate. They may mix you up with someone who has a similar name. They may produce information that goes back too far in your past.
Thankfully, the Fair Credit Reporting Act gives you rights. It says that a potential employer must provide you with a separate notice in advance of running a background check – or outsourcing the background check to a company like EmploySecure.com. It also requires the employer to get your written consent to be subjected to employment background screening. Crucially, the FCRA provides you with the right to dispute inaccurate information – before the employer makes a final decision – and to hold background check companies responsible if they make serious errors.

What are my Background Check Disclosure and Consent Rights?
The Fair Credit Reporting Act prioritizes consent and disclosure, and requires employers to take two actions prior to hiring a company like EmploySecure.com to conduct an employment background check: 1) the employer must give you a document separate from other paperwork that says they would like a background check; and 2) you must provide your permission – in writing – in order for the employer to proceed.
If your background check report – whether produced by EmploySecure.com or another agency – contains information that hurts your chances of being hired, the employer must tell you that. In fact, they need to send what’s called a “pre-adverse action” notification, along with a copy of your rights under the FCRA and your actual employment background report.
Your Right to a Mistake Free and Legally-Compliant Report From EmploySecure.com
Once you’ve consented to an employment background check, the potential employer likely outsources the work to an outside company – either EmploySecure.com or another background check company. Depending on the kind of information the employer seeks, the background check company can provide a criminal background history, a social media analysis, a credit report that includes the debts you own, and civil lawsuits you may have been involved in. They may deliver a verification of your education or your employment history, and can even go as far as interviewing people you know in order to produce a report on your character.
EmploySecure.com – or any other background screening company – has an obligation to abide by the rules of the Fair Credit Reporting Act when compiling its report. This means, for example, that they can’t report more than seven years of credit history or a bankruptcy that is more than seven years old. There is also a seven-year limit for criminal and civil records, with the exception of criminal convictions.
Your Right to Dispute an Inaccurate Report from EmploySecure.com
If an employer is going to reject your application due to the information on your background check report, they must tell you so. The Fair Credit Reporting Act says that they must also give you the name, address, and contact information for the company they used to compile the report.
The FCRA gives you the right to dispute an inaccurate report. The inaccuracy might consist of typographical errors – such as a mistaken social security number – outdated information, identity theft, or duplicate information. To dispute the report, notify both the employer and the background check company in writing of the error. The background check company has 30 days to investigate and correct the mistake.
Your Right to Sue EmploySecure.com for Mistakes, Errors, or Illegal Information
It is terrible to lose out on a job due to a mistake with your background check. That’s why the FCRA gives you the right to hold the background check company accountable for preventable errors or illegal information. You may be able to sue in a federal district court and, if you prevail, you can be awarded statutory damages (up to $1,000), actual damages (like your lost income), punitive dames, legal fees, and court costs.
Complaints Against EmploySecure.com
When mistakes in an employment background check cost you a job, the result can be catastrophic. That’s precisely why many folks leverage the power of the Fair Credit Reporting Act to take companies like EmploySecure.com to court.
FCRA lawsuits can be based on a few types of violations. Some assert that the person disputed inaccurate or illegal information, but the background check company failed to investigate. Others assert that the background check company was sloppy and included information on the report that’s prohibited by the FCRA. Sometimes, when a background check company harmed dozens of applicants in the same way, those consumers come together in a class action lawsuit.
